It's why I went down the clone pods route :lol:

Looks like I'll be hatching out another Vasquez and Drake for the next one.

I think I'll be hanging onto the 8 equipment cards for the next one.
Sure. It's quite a trade off to make really, it weakens you a lot. Plus, with all 8 cards you can have 2 Targeters.

But... the extra promotion does give you 1 extra Order card.

Good to know, although to be honest I don't think I've used all my order cards in any of the missions yet. In fact, I think the only one I used this time was the bonus one picked up mid-mission!

Hopefully I get more badges in the next one (assuming I survive), to make a lower equipment loadout less painful.

4 badges is always the maximum you can have at any one time. It's why you currently have 4, even though you've been awarded 5 over both missions.

So, going by the rules, any more badges you earn next mission won't be added to your total since you're maxed out.

I guess the question is: Do you want to 'reset' it to 0 & get the extra promotion now, which would then allow you to start building them up again.

Oh, well bearing in mind the info above, which I didn't know before, I'll take the promotion now too.

Noted, Lieutenant Senioris Gorman! :D

So.. would you like a few days break before I post the Mission 3 details? Or I can post them up tomorrow. I don't mind.

I guess I can put the details up, so you can all have a gander at things, then we'll start as & when you're all ready.

I just didn't want to rush any of you.


That was a very close mission. So well done all. The missions will now start to get a bit more challenging though as we say hello to a new game feature; alien reinforcements.

How many missions are there? Doesn't seem like it will take that many when the previous winners can jump up extra ranks like that.

There's 12 missions available. It's worth noting they'll start getting harder now, plus if the primary mission objective isn't achieved, none of you will get a promotion that mission. There are going to be missions where all 12 marines die and only the Commanders return, and it's possible none of you will receive an Honour Badge.

Also, the final promotion to Captain Senioris can't be bought by Honour Badges - it has to be won on a mission.

But even if we do get a 'winner' after 5 missions it's okay; we can still continue having a go at the other ones for as long you want to keep going - perhaps do all 12 missions and keep a ranking table of your performance. Some of the later ones get really crazy.

(I haven't even mentioned the rule that says you get punted back down to Sergeant if your Commander dies... although I'll probably houserule that a little bit to soften the blow)
